The syn and anti-oximes of delta-benzyl furfural have been examined in connection with sweet tasting compounds. The syn is sweeter than the anti-compound, and also sweeter than saccharine. Delta-bromofurfural has been prepared by the bromination of furfural diacetate. Organometallic compounds and derivatives from them have been prepared from 1-tetrahydro-furyl-3-bromobutane. Tetrahydrofuryl-p-toluenesulfonate has been prepared and tested for its alkylating action. A series of halogen furoic and furylacrylic acids has been prepared in antiseptic studies, and their mercury and copper salts are being tested for their possible applications as fungicides.
